Things You Probably Didn't Know about Passover

This year, Passover falls in April from Friday 15th until Saturday 23rd. Passover will always fall on the 15th day of the Hebrew month Nisan, the first month of Aviv, or in spring. Jewish households worldwide eagerly await Passover as it's a time to reflect on the history of Israelite liberation from slavery in Egypt and the passing over of the forces causing destruction, or sparing of the firstborn Israelites, on the eve of the Exodus when the Lord 'smote the land of Egypt'.

It's a time to gather and eat traditional Passover delicacies - it's one of the biggest parties for Jewish people on the calendar. Below, we'll look at some of the things you might not already know about Passover.

The Chabad-Lubavitch Movement Parties In Nepal

One of the biggest Passover parties happens in Napa, believe it or not. The Chabad-Lubavitch movement calls it the "Seder on Top of the World" celebration - typically, thousands of Jewish people attend the party in Kathmandu. Food and wine flow continuously throughout the seven - or sometimes eight - days of Passover until people can drink no more.

There are other parties like this around the world that offer the chance of pure indulgence for the Jewish community.

Passover Has Specific Food Rules

Like most Jewish holidays, Passover comes with a specific set of rules the Jewish community must follow. Practicing Jews indulge from the Passover seder plate filled with delicacies like matzo ball soup, gefilte fish, and chicken and potato. And, like most of the other Jewish holidays, certain foods are a no-go if the Passover rules are to be followed.

Under no circumstances can anything containing leaven pass the lips of a practicing Jew during Passover. Matzo - unleavened bread - can, however, be consumed. Matzo is symbolic because it symbolizes the Israelite suffering while in bonds and how swiftly they left Egypt before the Exodus.

Don't Worry, Coca-Cola Makes A Special Batch Of Kosher Coke

Coca-Cola is all in support of Passover - and for anyone who loves Coke, they make a special batch of Kosher Coke for people to drink while celebrating Passover as standard, since Coke is a high-fructose corn syrup no-go during Passover. It's not the type of thing you stumble across in the grocery store, but it's easy to find online. You'll be able to tell the difference between standard Coke and Passover Kosher Coke by the distinguishing yellow tops.

Abraham Lincoln Was Assassinated During Passover

Abraham Lincoln was an extremely famous US president that held the 16th presidential title until his assassination on 15th April 1865. At this point, many Jewish people would have been celebrating the first day of Passover in Synagogues across the US when news broke of the assassination - causing alters to be draped in black and Yom Kippur hymns to bellow out from behind the walls. That year, a time of celebration became a time of great mourning.

Passover is one of the most exciting Jewish holidays because it's such a big celebration. From the flowing food and wine to the Passover melodies - there's tons of fun to be had on Passover, and this year shouldn't be any different. How will you celebrate Passover this year?
